A point-of-view narrative that follows Sam as he reminisces on his past with Riley.

Filmmaker’s statement

OverAgain explores how we create idealized versions of our past that often lead us to miss the good things in front of us because of the fantasy behind us.

Narrated by Sam (Sam Krumrine), he reminisces on a romanticized history during his breakup with Riley (Riley Dandy). Lines blur between fact and fiction – is this how the relationship really was or is this just how Sam wants to remember it?

Although the film is written and directed through the eyes of young adults navigating modern dating, the reach feels much larger than that. Anyone who at one time has wondered, “What if it didn’t end?” can find a moment in the film they connect with.

I wouldn’t put an age, gender or demographic on it. If you’ve been through a breakup and struggled to move past it, OverAgain will resonate.
